Re: Model A Barrett-Jackson Record Price?

That was a very good deal IMO, it may have been a former Harrah Collection car. Crazy money was spent on the 1915 Ford Circus Cage at $200,000. Did anyone see the 1908 Model T sell? Wonder if that...

Re: Phaeton vs. Touring with the 1928 Ford

There were horse drawn Phaetons, and bicycles called Roadsters, so the term sure wasn't "modern" in 1928. Bob

Re: Suggestion On How To Get The Body Onto The Frame

Stack of concrete blocks two 4x4s a good floor jack, and some back & forth adding of blocks untill you can roll the chassis under it. Did a '35 Plymouth Coupe by myself that way, no big deal. Bob

Door Hinge INTERCHANGE

Not a "Fine Point" question, will FORDOR hinges interchange with other closed body types, or are they unique to Fordors only? Bob

Re: Color 1929 Fordor (60-B,C,170-A)

The Andalusite Blue is a nice color, the shop painted a 1928 Dodge and a 1932 Ford Roadster in it if you want to see it rather than a paint chip in a book. Bob

Re: Winfield Crow Foot Head question

Is it a Crow Foot because there are ridges in the combustion chamber? If so Google Recardo head, and some info will come up, they used this on aftermarket Model T heads back in the day. Bob

Re: Different models of 1930 Fordor Sedans

My guess is someone saw the cowl lights and thought it was a "Deluxe" years ago. Nice car. Bob

First time in 86 years

Took the body off a 1928 yesterday to see the chassis number for the first time since it was stamped. I'm sure the owner will be happy to know it matches the engine number, a March built car, but I...

Re: Not Model A: What happen to Model T number 77?

I believe #714 is the "Eastwood 1909 Ford" sad how that car and the others in the City Collection are never seen outside the basement. Bob

Re: EARLY 1928 Roadster Cowl

All the features mentioned above have nothing to do with the aero effect of either cowl as I can see it. Maybe this was just a myth without any proven wind tunnel testing, even if some cowl side...
